Acrylic Nails in Orlando
In Orlando, nails make the perfect style accessory, capping off your ensemble with a refreshing, eye-catching accent of color—or, that is, a clash of off-colored, half-shellacked, or chipped nails that shock an onlooker, if you haven’t been to an Orlando nail salon recently.
Nail Salons in Orlando
As we know, nails often represent the tipping point in a fashionable appearance—but how does one go about figuring out the optimal nail color or type or care routine? With so many variables that can go wrong and potentially harm the overall health of your nails, you should entrust your cuticles to a trained and licensed nail technician at a local Orlando nail salon.
To help you get started, we’ve outlined the type of services offered at salons in Orlando, the prices, how long a service might take, how long it might last afterwards, and, finally, how to find a nail tech near you!
Orlando Nail Services
In Orlando, nail salons offer the traditional manicures and pedicures, which both include removing the cuticles, softening and massaging the skin, as well as cutting, shaping, and painting your finger - or toenails. In addition to these two, more basic services, nail offerings at salons normally also include:
This means you will get all 10 of your nails done, rather than simply a touch-up service, whether it’s acrylic or gel polish.
When you have your nails done, your polish can last a good 2 weeks before your nails begin to grow out. Once they do, you can have the area of nail growth filled in by requesting a “fill-in.”
As a combination of liquid and powders, acrylic colors are mixed right before your eyes, so you can ascertain the correct product being used. Then, it’s brushed onto your nails before it’s air-dried.
A full acrylic set costs about $35+, can take an hour or 2 to complete, and can last about 2 weeks before requiring a fill-in, which costs around $25.
Gels tend to be a bit higher quality and slightly more healthy than acrylics. Gel polish is painted on and then curated with a UV light to harden the polish onto the nails, which results in sleek and strong nails. A full gel set can take 30 minutes to 2 hours, costs around $45+, and can last about 2 weeks.
Remember: If they use powder or liquid at all, it is not gel; it’s acrylic. Gel nails will only ever be painted on from a bottle of gel.
